Thanks for being You!!

This card is my entry for this week's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog. There is a gorgeous sketch by lovely and talented Nikki, and can be used in soo many ways. I wanted to play with a HAnglar this time, and I chose the papers to go with the beautiful tiny plants this sweet girl is carrying. I am already imagining the beautiful flowers they will become!! :) As you may notice, it has a detachable bookmark, and it can be kept as a keepsake.

Also in mind I had my DT work for Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog. This week's theme is GLITTER and I've been naughty, but also very busy. Only now I managed to finish this card (took me 3 days to finish bit by bit!)

If you click on the picture you'll see the glitter better!

I would like to dedicate my card and the sentiment that is on the card to all my blogging friends, for making the last months and this year a lovely one.. enriching my life with just being in it.. just by being YOU! I send my most sincere greetings and best wishes, and may we continue to enrich each other's life in so many ways. A lonely person is one of life's worst tragedies.. so friendship is one of the most precious gifts you and me can give ...a gift which costs us nothing but no amount of money can buy! God bless, and take courage.. the weekend is here!! :)

Things I used for this beauty:
HAnglar image (sent to me by dear Lim
Glitter pens and watercolours for colouring
DP: Basic Grey Sultry paper
Prima flowers
Prima Centre Kisses
Embroidery thread and beads
Pink Satin ribbon, and Green polks dot ribbon for bookmark

Yes, I use a paintbrush for colouring with the Distresses, usually no. 01. Here is a link: It is in Norwegian, but maybe you find a simular at your place:)
